Power supply problem

I accidentally clicked the wrong option on amazon and got a 500w power supply instead of a 600w. My estimated wattage is 450w but a friend told me I should have at least an extra 100w. I built this computer so I don't really have any warranty. Am I going to fry my pc? Here's the specs if you want more information.
